An affordable 3-pack of replacement packets for the Planet Waves' Humidipak humidity controller

This 3-pack of replacement packets for Planet Waves' Humidipak humidification system is an affordable way to keep your acoustic instrument at its proper relative humidity. The packets last from 2-6 months, so ordering a three pack can last you anywhere from half a year to a year-and-a-half.

The patented, two-way Humidipak humidification system (sold separately) is a two-way humidity controller that's recommended by Taylor guitars and other leading manufacturers for maintaining the stability and playability of your instrument. This humidification system maintains 45-50% relative humidity, eliminating all maintenance and guesswork. No more guessing if or when to refill the humidifier and worrying about drips or creating a mess. Unlike other refillable humidifiers, the Humidipak humidity controller acts as a gauge because it provides true two-way, purified humidity control. It adds or reduces moisture as needed to maintain proper relative humidity, which is the ideal climate for wooden instruments such as acoustic guitars.

Just place 2 packets in the double pouch, place the double pouch over your D and G strings, and let it hang down into the soundhole. Place the third Humidipak replacement packet under your guitar's headstock while in its case. Close the case and you're done! The packet will last anywhere from 2-6 months, depending on the humidity where you instrument is located. When the Humidipak packet becomes firm, discard it and replace it with another Humidipak replacement packet.


Keep your acoustic instrument humidified properly with back up packets that keep the humidity going when you order this packet 3-pack today.

      Comments about Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      Here's a hint I use for extending the life of the humidipaks. Buy some Planet Waves GH-RS 3-pak sponges, put one damp in the headstock pouch, and rotate the pouches between the headstock and soundhole pouches. The humidpak will absorb the moisture from the sponge and last much longer.

      Not too expensive

      By Richard Carew

      Comments about Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      The humidipaks from Taylor cost $30 a set so when I saw the same thing for $20 I thought I was getting a bargain. I live in Phoenix AZ where the air is really dry and I have to replace my Humidpaks once a month. It's still a bargain compared to the price of the gitaars I play. I'm also getting a cutom made guitar that I for sure want to keep humidified. I intend to keep this guitar the rest of my life even if it costs $60 a month to take care of my two Taylors and my custom made one by Josh Benton.

      Expensive and not reusable

      By Daniel Thompson

      from Manchester, CT

      Comments about Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      I bought mine from my luthier on his recommendation without really doing my own research.

      On the plus side, they actually control the humidity inside the case, soaking up excess humidity if that's a problem for you, as well as releasing moisture as needed in dry environments. And another plus is that they require almost no maintenance, unlike sponge based products that you have to wet every few days.

      They work really well in a closed, sealed case, but only for about 2 months and then they have to be replaced. You cannot recharge or rewet the packets. They are a single use item. So if you go this route you'll end up spending a lot per year for humidification per guitar, and more than that if you use a gig bag that doesn't seal up tight.

      Good Humidity Control but short-lived

      By Robert Bartz

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      Living in the cold, dry environment of the upper Midwest during the current harsh winter of 2011, I wanted to protect my new guitar from damage due to low humidity. After reading several articles on the subject and noting Taylr Guitar's recommendation, I purchased a set of Planet Wave's humidipaks when I purchased a new GS Mini travel guitar. The guitar comes in its' own custom gig bag for easy transport, especially on airlines. I installed and dated the humidpaks when I brought the guitar home.

      During the next month or so, the humidity seemed to be regulated pretty well, but shortly after new-year's it was clear the packs had run out of steam. I had purchsed a hydrometer to track the humidity in the case and discovered after only one month, the humidity had dropped below 20%. I was hoping they would have lasted longer than that. I became concerned about the cost of replacing the packs every month. Since I also live in a rather arid environment in Africa, I decided this solution would not work for me. I have since sought out other options.

      I believe one reason for the short life of the packs is due to the gig bag. If you wish to humidify a guitar in a hard case, the packs may last longer. However, if you are using the guitars regularly, this solution will be expensive. I can't afford to spend so much per year per guitar to keep it humidified. If you are interested in storing a guitar for a longer period in an air-tight case, this would be a good solution.
